Books aren't all that great for a mobile lifestyle. They're heavy. Awkward to store. And those glorious displays of leather, or matte and glossy spines on open shelves would never survive the four point magnitude earthquake of going from place to place. You could fill your cupboards with them (if properly secured). But why bother … Continue reading Putting Your Dreams In Storage…
When adventurers are carted in by the wagon load to stem the tide of an unspeakable malevolence, can it still be called heroism?
Last month I posted about getting hits to my website from search terms related to an old DnD campaign. Back in the day, I had an entire campaign website (I still park the domain eyrurpg.com) and even maintained a mailing list. They were a quiet, non-rabid fandom and when I finally pulled the plug on the … Continue reading FEAR MY LUKE-WARM STARDOM
A super short post today, hopefully I get another one online tomorrow. However, I wanted to leave this message: I AM HERE A little explanation is in order.

He'll invite everyone he knows to a board game night in hopes of playing DJ at some kind of Mountain Dew fueled rave where everyone's slinging card-stock and polyhedrals until the wee hours. At times, he's drawn crowds big enough he … Continue reading Wookies and Vibrators

It's been a fun experience and I've been able to chat a bit with readers and writers and have gotten some kind feedback on my stories so far. Anyway, now that the floodgates have … Continue reading Advanced Table Top Plots

Okay, I can wait. Oh, c'mon, not the botched spine surgery story again, Uncle Cook! Can't you just stand for one second. Mikey, … Continue reading Dungeons and Dragons Family Reunion
Lots of geekery as of late. Last weekend it was the renn faire. There, I saw a landing party that was either really far off course or had slingshot around the sun and travelled back in time. Either way, interesting to see some trekkies wandering the streets of Scarborough. One of these days, I'll break … Continue reading Of Dopplegangers and Roleplay

And yes, that's a writer or two at his table (John Rogers, the screenwriter for Leverage). It is entertaining to watch and comes across as exactly what it is - … Continue reading Table Top Plots
